Cube Cakes at The Hotel (with #BxlFF)

Brussels Food Friends (BFF or BXLFF as we hashtaged) hosted their first food blogger meet-up this past weekend at the magnificent “The Hotel” – and let’s just say it…. “if it was good enough for President Obama… then it was more than good enough for us!”

We were really and truly treated to an afternoon of luxury & decadence… seated in the Bar Lounge area… 25 Belgian based food bloggers got to mingle with each other… as well as with the creative chef genius known as Pierre Balthazar (of The Restaurant) & his patissier Claudio Renzi.

We were presented with a wide array of choices in their sumptuous Cube Cakes:

cakes 2 cakes 1 cake plate

Red = yoghurt with raspberry
Green = pistachio with strawberry
Orange = chocolate with orange
White = vanilla with green apple and white chocolate
Yellow = passion fruit with mango and white chocolate
Purple = blackberry with lemon and dark chocolate

I tried the White & Green options and have to say that I am 110% won over by the vanilla & green apple combination… DELISH! (particularly as there are hidden chocolate covered puff balls in the green apple centre that just “pop” in your mouth… Mmmm)

We were also presented with the opportunity to taste-test 3 new cube cake flavours:

White chocolate with pistachio and red fruit
Dark chocolate with kumquat and litchi cream
Milk chocolate with coconut and pineapple

Of which I can confess being tempted to lick the plate of the Dark chocolate & kumquat offering… (and even as delicious as this option was – I felt that the vanilla cube still held a big part of my stomach heart!)

"kiss me".... ok :)

Not only was The Hotel & The Restaurant amazing hosts for the event – but this venue continues to shine as a beacon of trust when it comes to excellence in food & service.

A gigantic thank you to The Hotel for hosting… as well as to the generous sponsors who provided items for the goodies bags… but lastly… none of this would have been possible without the actual attendee’s on the day!

these goodie bags were fan-tab-ulous...
